Innovasys Pty Ltd

About

innovative, experienced, dedicated

in The Beginning

Ultimo 1997, we of course knew everything, mid-20s, casuals to work, colour on the walls … we were different from the Royal Australian Navy’s usual contractors and we had just won a “massive” support contract competing against some of Australia's largest Defence Primes. We were now the validation, engineering and maintenance support agency, the Engineering Agency, and part of the Royal Australian Navy Project Authority, responsible for providing support to the Fleet’s Electronic Test & Repair Facilities. Fingers crossed.

More than 20 years on, whilst the role has evolved and Defence organisations have changed names, merged, demerged, (several times), we are still the incumbent contractor, successfully competing for the role five times.

and now

Based in the Hunter, definitely still casuals to work, (although we’ve ditched the peach coloured walls), belief in our abilities, encouraging innovation and cultivating our client relationships has enabled Innovasys to grow into a valued supplier of products, engineering and maintenance services to the ADF and Defence contractors.

The essential ingredient to this success has been our people; they are innovative, dedicated and experienced. The retention rate of Innovasys' leadership group is more than 17 years; they provide our clients with a reliable resource of knowledge and experience. Recruitment focuses on finding people who fit our team culture, bring new ideas, question our path and rejuvenate our enthusiasm.

Our revenue base is still primarily generated by the provision of products and services relating to automated test of electronic assemblies and communications equipment. However, in more recent years we have invested in our capability to design and manufacture custom electronics, diversifying our client base and providing our people an opportunity to be involved in some innovative projects. We consider the expansion of this service offering to be essential to Innovasys' ongoing success and for this reason we are actively seeking these types of opportunities.
